I Am staying in this hotel and I have had the worst stay experience of my life. The receptionist has no idea about how to talk to customer. Amsterdam is a place where road side goons have the decency to say sorry but a hotel receptionist asks a customer to "shutup". I was even threatened saying this is his country... More

Perfect location, very central and friendly staff. Situated on a quiet canal. Large room and a lovely view of the canal. Booked with booking.com for £120 for 2 nights. Optional breakfast was €10 per day extra - cheaper to eat at surrounding cafes. Would highly recommend!

Amsterdam is an amazing city with its rich diversity living comfortably along side each other. The hotel is cosy feels 3 star ish, but the hotels downtown are a little pricy. But location is within easy walking distance. Breakfast whilst a little more than you might imagine, provide a good variety of continental 'plus' ingredients. The rooms were alittle basic,... More

The hotel is nice and just a few step away from Dam Square. Although the room was quite small and without any kind of view nor a double bed, it was very clean and the staff very nice and helpful. I do recommend this place but for less money it's possible to find a bigger and more "romantic" place.

The Times Hotel is perfectly located in the city centre, you have it only few mins by bike to get anywhere. Rooms are very nicely decorated, we booked the canal view, so we could enjoy the real Amsterdam. Breakfast is for extra money, but you may choose from wide variety of food and as a honeymoon upgrade I asked for... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in December and absolutely loved it. Hotel was very cozy and very well located, about 5min walk or less to Dam Square. Hotel is also located right on the canals. Beds were comfortable and room was clean. Breakfast was 10euros which was a little expensive given the selection/range the had. My advice would be to... More

Having just returned from 5 days in this hotel I am happy to review it. Great location, just off the main drag so a bit quieter but only a couple of minutes walking takes you to everything you could want. The room was not huge as quoted in earlier reviews but plenty big enough for the two of us. The... More

Recent reviews seem to concentrate on four topics, so here goes ... Location - Agreed, absolutely spot-on and easy walking distance to Centraal Station and all major attractions. Staff - Agreed, exceptionally pleasant and helpful. Breakfast - OK, so it is continental (cold) only, but we thought it was actually quite good value at 10 Euros, particularly if you want... More
